ASE Technology Holding Joins Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program


Reading time ( words)

ASE Technology Holding Co., Ltd., announced that it has joined the Apple Supplier Clean Energy Program. As a leading semiconductor packaging, test and system service provider, ASE is focused on cutting edge manufacturing technologies including System-in-Package (SiP), Heterogeneous Integration (HI), 3D IC, MEMS and sensor, and systems integration that form the backbone of many electronic devices. Semiconductor manufacturing is an energy intensive industry, and ASE is taking bold steps to improve its energy efficiency and steadily shift to greener production.

ASE is supportive of industry efforts to advance the use of clean energy within the supply chain and is pleased to join the Apple Supplier Clean Energy Program which is focused on transitioning suppliers to clean, renewable energy. By participating in the program, ASE can augment its current approaches to clean energy by tapping into the leadership and resources established by Apple.

The most meaningful approach to greenhouse gas reduction is to shift to the use of renewable energy. In 2019, ASE’s total renewable energy consumption amounts to 509,067 MWh, a year-on-year increase of 28% (2018 - 397,766 MWh). The company has 8 manufacturing facilities worldwide that is completely powered by renewable energy and 3 facilities that have procured renewable energy sources to supplement their energy consumption. To further enhance efficiency in energy usage, ASE invested in a three-year smart grid research project in 2018 to integrate energy intelligence for balancing demand and energy generation.

In 2014, ASE was the first company in Asia to issue green bonds with its proceeds earmarked for green buildings and green production. ASE launched a second green bond issue in 2019, applying the proceeds towards development in renewable energy sources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, managing energy efficiency, and recycling, reuse and conservation efforts.
